Post-stage data collection

After collecting all the data, it was necessary to develeop the following process to to analyze the information in order to answer the research question: How will the use of the genre process approach and e-portfolio dossier help eleventh graders improve their short story writing skills?

Intially, I used the trend analysis approach (Sagor, 2005, p.110), since it is a useful strategy for tracing all the changes in performance occurred during the process to answer the research question. The collected data was filtered, ranked, and examined to get a better understanding of the phenomenon under investigation, and to produce a grounded theory regarding what might be done to improve the situation ( Sagor, 2000, p. 6.

This stage of the research process was very meanigful since I found the concurrences that constructed the categories that emerged from this study.
